It's about time they catch these useless employees. Now many more clinics need to watch for this breach in patient privacy. It goes on more than these medical groups want you to know. I have seen it myself. Some staff members think they run the show and even the Doctors can't control them. They treat patients rudely and aggresively, thinking they have more control than the Doctor. Hopefully the watching starts in the North Metro.

From day one when it became mandatory for patient medical records to be entered into a computer system, it gave any and all staff members access to your medical records.
